This two-part series, which is very language-focussed, discusses the ways in which critical writing is similar to, and different from, other kinds of writing which researchers need to do. It looks in close detail at the special features of critical writing, and many specific things you can do, to adjust your own critical writing.

Cassily has worked in universities for 20 years in Group-of-Eight, regional and international universities, in academic literacy, researcher development and English linguistics. In recent years she has supported thousands of research candidates, early career researchers, supervisors and other academic staff and students with counselling, teaching, writing groups, writing feedback and coaching. In addition to her degrees in linguistics and education, she is a qualified social worker. She never finished her own PhD, many years ago – and doesn’t regret it – but has travelled that journey with others many times since then.
